Probably true, but I don't think it was designed to tour with. It's more for carrying day-trip stuff like the jacket you have to strip because the sun came up, maybe a pair of walking shoes and a lunch... stuff that has more volume than weight.

It's a little bigger/longer taper than the RANS offering, maybe bigger than the X-Eyed trunk, too? That would mean it helps a little bit more in the aerodynamics department. I've got a standard Angletech seat bag for my RANS, and I really like it. Kelvin is very conscientious about putting out a quality product, and I would expect no less from the aerotrunk.
